It depends. Circulars can be used for knitting in the round or knitting flat, back and forth, but generally when a hat pattern asks for a circular needle it means that it is going to be knit in the round. In that case, you cannot use straight needles in its place. There are hat patterns that are knit flat and then seamed up one side, which can be knitted with straight needles.
